thebestof launch 14 days of love - 1st February - 14th February 2010 - share some love for your favourite local businesses!
1st February 2010

As you will note from the hearts & banners the 14 days of love campaign has kicked off today!


This campaign has been setup by us at thebestof to show some appreciation for the many wonderul independent local businesses that have kept the economy going throughout the last 18 months & delivered fantastic customer service.

The recent survey by thebestof indicated that 78 percent of people across the Warwick area believe that staff in larger companies often don't know as much as they should about products and services.  55 percent of people polled across Warwickshire said that they'd even had an argument with someone in a large organisation due to poor service.

In contrast the survey showed how much people across the area value our small local businesses- one in five people said that there was at least one small local business that they couldn't live without, a strong statement indeed!

Eight in ten people said that smaller businesses deserve more recognition for their role in the community and 82 percent wish that local businesses received more support.


So with all this in mind we at thebestof have decided to run a campaign to get people to support and show their love for local businesses.  Share the love at
